Office of Strategic Communication staff are ready to help connect media with UI sources, provide information about administrative and academic matters, and share the University of Iowa story.

News Media Relations main line: 319-384-0019

Media inquiries:

As a state institution, journalists have access to open, public areas across the University of Iowa campus.

Journalists are encouraged to contact the Office of Strategic Communication before conducting interviews or filming footage. The OSC team can make the newsgathering process easier by providing access to campus buildings and newsmakers.

The media must contact our office before entering residence halls or classrooms, unless a specific faculty member has granted a journalist permission to visit their classroom.
